Africa is still feeling disgusted from her physical fight with Alex in the club bathroom and meets up with Vawn over breakfast to discuss what happened. She was so upset she felt “like I wanted to burn the whole place down and everybody in it.” Talk about being dramatic, but in her defense she claims she’s never put her hands on another person in anger in her life.
Vawn clearly enjoyed being the focus of the fight, teasingly calling Africa Mike Tyson and wishing he had tickets to see the fight. Africa tells Vawn Alex plans to take him away from her, Africa reiterates her statement to Vawn saying, “I don’t own Vawn, he’s not mine,” Vawn gives an ever-so-slight shrug and eyebrow raising to confirm the truth in her statement.
Meanwhile, Sincerely catches up with Alex at the hair salon to finally tighten up that lioness hair weave. Alex shares her side of the story and Sincerely doesn’t seem to be buying her version, which paints Africa as the aggressor. Sincerely speaks up when Alex calls Africa old and a failure because she’s not the next Beyonce. Pretty sure there are other levels to achieve before reaching the Beyonce status. Alex is one to talk knocking down another’s success when she hasn’t done a hard day’s work in her life.
“This is childish,” Sincerely stands up to leave. “You need to grow up and take a good look in the mirror; figure out some things. Do some self-evaluation.” And leaves Alex chilling in the salon chair not depositing the two cents Sincerely gave her.
Later Emily has it out with her employer/friend Emily 2, as she’s called on the show, about how she didn’t handle her tasks well for the fashion show and doesn’t show her any respect as her boss. Can’t imagine a boss telling their employee “f**k you” but that’s what she did and Emily 2 threatened not to come back to work.
Still feeling ballsy, Emily decides to confront Vawn at her barbecue where she invites Africa, Vawn and a few other friends over. Emily pulls Vawn to the side and cleverly gets him to take off his signature shades so she can look him eye to eye. After all, it was nighttime and unnecessarily worn with the exception of protecting his cool image. Emily advises him to be careful with her friend, talking to Alex and challenges his dating views.
Africa attends a well populated birthday bash for Vawn’s friend Gas (really? Yes really) and she is excited that she and Vawn coincidentally matched wearing camouflage gear. The perfect couple so it seemed. Emily eyeballs Vawn and gets annoyed watching him flirt with different women.
Apparently Africa has blinders on because she acts like she couldn’t see anything. However, once Emily decides to leave (because she prefers country music in a bar over hip hop music in an urban club), Africa gets a much needed reality check witnessing Vawn leave with a big booty woman in a tight mini dress. Africa tries not to show how upset she is in front of her girls who also witness the embarrassment. Even though her friends may not agree with her dating choice they still consoled her and escorted her out of the club, hoping to preserve whatever dignity she had left.
